This has probably been asked and answered here before, but I'm kind of new here and could use a little advice on CCW ammo.
My carry piece is a Ruger SR9c. For range shooting I have been using PMC Bronze (brass cased) 9mm 115 grain ammo. Fairly inexpensive, seems to be reliable and consistent (no FTEs or FTFs so far). However, I like something with a bit more poop for CCW.
Right now I have a box of Hornady TAP FPD 124 gr that I'm carrying in the mags. but I have never yet shot any of it. This stuff has a steel case and I have been reading on some other threads that some people really don't like steel case ammo as it might damage the extractor. While steel is certainly tougher than brass, I'm not too sure that a steel case would damage an extractor. The Hornady ammo is moderately expensive, but I'm less concerned about price that I am about the long term health of my new Ruger. Maybe some other brand would work better than Hornady? Not interested in +P ammo.
Any advice would be welcome.
